Yummy Christmas Drinks

The holidays often inspire us to eat warm, traditional meals and spend extra time with our families. Add to that
the fun of making up a nice spiced drink to sip near the fire and you're ready to bask in the holiday season! Here
are a few great drink recipes for you to try out (or, as a reminder if you've had them before).

Hot Buttered Rum

2 c. vanilla ice cream
1 c. granulated sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. butter

Directions: Mix the regular and brown sugars and butter in
a sauce pan. Set to a low heat until the butter melts. Be
sure to stir occasionally. When the butter is melted, pour
the mixture into a large bowl and add the ice cream. Beat together until the mixture is smooth. To make the buttered rum drink, fill 1/4 of a cup with the mixture, add about an ounce of rum, and 3/4 of a cup of boiling water. Top with a pinch of nutmeg. The butter/ice cream/sugar mixture can be kept in a sealed container in the fridge for about two weeks, which makes it a cinch to prepare when you have unexpected company.

Kahlua Egg Nog

Egg Nog

Directions: This one's easy! In a glass, mix 4 parts egg
nog to 1 part kahlua. Top with a sprinkle of nutmeg if you
want to jazz it up a bit.

Chilled Mocha with Bailey's

4 oz. of chocolate milk
2 oz. of cold coffee
1 oz. Bailey's Irish cream
Whipped cream
Chocolate powder or shavings

Directions: In a large glass, add ice, chocolate milk,
coffee, and Bailey's. Mix together and top with whipped
cream. Sprinkle chocolate shavings or a dash of chocolate powder and serve.

Hot Mulled Apple Cider

3 cups of apple cider
4 cinnamon sticks + 2 more to garnish
1/2 cup of cinnamon schnapps
1/2 cup of spiced rum

Directions: Mix all of the ingredients together in a sauce
pan (or slow cooker) and heat on a medium heat. Once the mixture is hot, reduce to a low heat and allow it to mull for about an hour. Serve warm and garnish with a cinnamon stick or two.

Now your holiday recipe arsenal is stocked with some highly tasty drink recipes! Many of these recipes can easily be altered to a non-alcoholic beverage so that your youngsters can enjoy them as well, so don't be afraid to whip up a batch that the whole family can enjoy! 'Happy holidays!
